Train like a Triathlete Year-Round!
Our Kids Winter Program runs October to April, providing young athletes with the opportunity to participate in sport specific workouts led by great coaches.
Winter sessions will take place Saturdays at Pan Am Pool from 9:00 to 11:00 am. Starting with a run fitness workout before moving to the pool for swim training, the program is designed to develop fitness and strength for all three sports.
The program is targeted at youth 8 – 12 years of age (Birth years 2010 – 2014).
Annika Niblock will continue as our head coach for the program. Annika is a graduate of the TriMB Youth & MTC Programs, competed in triathlon at the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games and is currently pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies at U of M.
From November onward, Darian Hole joins our coaching staff. Like Annika, Darian is a former MTC athlete, having competed as part of Team Manitoba at the 2013 Canada Summer Games, and he brings a wealth of experience from his years in the sport.
Our coaches are keen to help a next generation of athletes fall in love with triathlon by sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for our sport.
For the last four years, the wildest Winnipeggers have beaten the cold so others don’t have to. This year, there are two options to feed your need for frosty fun: race in person, or create your own virtual race.
The In-Person Race – February 4, 2023
The in-person race is back and everyone involved is excited to welcome you back to The Forks this season. The race will include a 5 kilometre run, bike and skate. Join us in all your layers, with all your friends, and help raise funds for 1JustCity and their emergency overnight shelter, Just a Warm Sleep.
The Virtual Race – January 20 to February 3, 2023
For our virtual race, you can create your own course with your choice of sports and location, or you can race our original triathlon by running, skating, and biking for a minimum of 5km each.
If you choose to Challenge Your Course, choose at least two winter sports you love. You can skate, ski, snowshoe, toboggan, or even roll a snowball uphill. It’s up to you, so get creative with it! Just make sure your race has three distinct legs. There’s no minimum distance!
100% of the Beat The Cold profits will go toward Just a Warm Sleep, 1JustCity’s overnight emergency warming centre in our newly-renovated Oak Table space.
Every night from December through March, Just a Warm Sleep invites up to 30 people experiencing homelessness into its outreach site at 107 Pulford Street to get a safe, warm sleep. To find other ways you can contribute to this program, contact
